Unfavorite No one has favorited this theater yet

Located in the northeast Manchester district of Harpurhey. The Queen’s Park Hippodrome was built on the site of an old tramshed, and opened on 25th April 1904. It present variety, drama, pantomime and revue, and in later years was equipped to screen films which became part of the variety programmes. It was operated by the Broadhead’s Theatres chain.

In the late-1940’s and until its closure in 1952, it presented ‘sizzlingly saucey’ French variety shows. The building lay empty, becoming more derelict as years passed by, until it was demolished in January 1966. The entire area has now been redeveloped and Turkey Street no longer exists.
